Default Alarm went off!

My new 991.2 C2S was sitting in my closed, locked garage & the garage had been closed/locked for 6 hours (I have an app that tells me garage door status)
Is this a known issue with the car?

I really doubt it is the battery since new & I drive it several times per week.

Is it possible that you accidentally pressed the panic button on the key fob?

No, I really doubt it, My key fob is fully encased in a leather case & there are 3 button spots embossed into the leather on one side & none on the back side where the panic button is. It takes a harder than normal press on the leather to activate the buttons.

Okay, then the panic button explanation is pretty much ruled out. Also, you just pointed out an advantage to the leather key fob case that I hadn't considered!

I hate to admit it but I set mine off accidently, by hitting the panic button

I was woken up in the middle of the night when the smoke/co2 alarm in my room went off for seemingly no apparent reason. Still scratching my head on that one.
